"Leap Of Faith debuts at #6 on NAR radio charts
First I have to say Hat’s off to the dynamic duo of Tingstad & Rumbel for producing another masterpiece. Their latest project, Leap Of Faith is a masterful mix of Covers and Original songs performed with great balance in tempo and style. It’s one of the most entertaining and refreshing gems to come along in a long while.
Moving from their usual introspective style to one with a little more bounce especially on The Title-Track, Zacatecas, Sweet Potato, Happy Trails, and San Antonio Rose. On Leap Of Faith they show a definite versatility and a whole new dimension to their signature sound.
Nancy Rumbel’s English horn on Georgia On My Mind and especially Summertime captures the feel of both songs perfectly. On Summertime Rumbel really hits the mark giving the audience a real feel of what Gershwin was trying to get across in his Classic Piece.
Eric Tingstad’s guitar speaks volumes throughout the album but especially on Spring Maiden, Chinese Lullaby and Medicine Trail (which I understand was his inspiration for his Grammy nominated album, Southwest).
Finally Congratulations on this new project. As always it is Pleasing to the ear and Soothing to the soul. May you never stop doing what you do best.
